The trio begins the podcast discussing how ADSTAR will support the growth and development of Australian defence businesses, focusing on the key themes of:

  • Resilience in contested environments.
  • The use of artificial intelligence.
  • The use of human and defensive biotechnologies.

The trio then discusses ADSTAR's “start-up alley”, and how the summit will give SMEs the opportunity to showcase their innovations.

The podcast wraps up discussing recent examples of when the DSTG has helped facilitate the growth of defence start-ups, with critical insight into how businesses can rise to the challenge of operating in the defence supply chain.
